Anxiety, Stress, and Worry
Persistent worry, feeling shaky and breathless, a sense of losing control, and negative or
frightening thoughts can all feel uncomfortable, confining, or even dangerous. Anxiety can
seem like it has a permanent and controlling role in your life. Thankfully, effective research-based counseling treatments can significantly help to reduce anxiety and increase your sense of well-being. Learning to recognize anxious cues in your thoughts, emotions, and body and learning how to respond helpfully to them can give back so much time, energy, and choices that anxiety takes from you.
I help anxious adults learn skills to help you feel better, and to become confident in knowing
how to deal effectively with anxiety.
New and Established Couples
When you think you know someone so well, it can be surprising or even frustrating to
encounter situations that interfere with your peace at home. It is totally normal to face
significant changes over time as a couple, despite the widespread assumption that your
original attraction and romance should be enough to sustain you through several decades.
Letting problems linger due to embarrassment or hoping they will go away on their own delays
the relief of finding a good solution and can make issues harder to work through.
Guided by research that supports the best long-term outcomes for a mutually satisfying
relationship, I help you find solutions that best fit your needs, offer a fresh perspective, and
which feel fair.
Issues that I help couples deal with include expectations and agreements about money,
preferences for sex and intimacy, no (or low) sex relationships, effective communication and
arguments, household roles and expectations, cultural and religious differences, relationship
effects of long-term health issues of one or both partners, coping with emotional, sexual, and
financial infidelity, revising shared goals through stages of life, interactions with families of
origin, issues with children and parenting, fertility, finding and maintaining an ideal balance of
work and free time, and celebrating special occasions in mutually enjoyable ways.
I am a licensed professional counselor with over 15 years of experience. I am a perceptive,
compassionate, and collaborative counselor who can help you look through your present and
past to identify and address the problems that are interfering with your life. Using the most up
to date evidence-based therapeutic models, I can help you feel better and live your life the way
you want to be able to experience it.
